Scholas Occurrentes, a worldwide network of schools promoted by Pope Francis
Alliance Scholas Occurrentes
Involving young people in social issues
Scholas Occurrentes is a worldwide network of schools promoted by Pope Francis. The goal is the integration of educational communities around the world, with special emphasis on those with fewer resources.
The collaboration between the Barça Foundation and this worldwide network of schools began in 2015 when Scholas Ocurrentes arrived in Tarragona with the Scholas Ciutadania program. In March 2019, these conferences were organized in Barcelona, and were attended by 300 students. They addressed issues such as inequality, gender violence, discrimination, bullying and stereotypes.
